There were media from all over the world following the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley; and one very notable celebrity — Dave Chappelle.
The comedian that walked away from millions on his Comedy Central show and many consider the funniest comic today was briefly at the post-fight conference, as Chappelle is a boxing aficionado and fan of the Filipino star.
Chappelle was at Pacquiao’s last fight in Macau, China, but was whisked away as he was being bombarded even in the media center.
But, Manny Pacquiao, Timothy Bradley and trainers Freddie Roach and Joel Diaz would take the stage. Here are some things they had to say…

Joel Diaz: “After the first round, I didn’t have much to work with.” (Referring to an injury to a right calf injury Bradley suffered that the camp didn’t expand on.) “I’m a big fan of Manny Pacquiao.”
Freddie Roach: “Manny was a little sloppy.” “Next, I’d like to see us fight Juan Manuel Marquez, we owe him own, or Floyd Mayweather.”
Timothy Bradley: “I have no excuses. I have no excuses. Manny beat me. He’s a true champion.” “I’ll go back to they gym, get better. I’ll be world champion again.”
Manny Pacquiao: “Bradley was much better this time. He threw a lot of punches.” “I don’t know who would be next, it’s up to my promoter Bob Arum, whatever they think is best I’ll do.”

A competitive fight that lived up to the pre-fight hype and both fighters followed through on their words — Bradley went for the knockout and exchanged with Pacquiao — and Pacquiao was aggressive and tried to finish Bradley at times.
A fifth matchup with Juan Manuel Marquez seems odd, and I didn’t think Team Pacquiao would want to revisit that fight after winning two of those bouts, with one draw, but if a fight with Floyd Mayweather can be made — that should be next.
